    Celebration (Finished treatment): Tony finished his treatment February 2012 and was cancer free. We skyped and drank champagne. He will have 3-4 month checks with blood work and CT scans. There is joy but some looking over the shoulder. He has immersed himself in life again.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy: My son had aggressive chemo in 3 cycles with the first week of each cycle being a 5 day week. He was so exhausted and weak after 4 days. He slept the entire weekend after. He was able to go to work when he could which ended up being the 2nd and 3rd week of each cycle. Work was never guaranteed and he did work alot of half days...his employer worked with him. The most traumatic part was losing his hair, a test showing his lung capacity was compromised from chemo and a rash that would come and go. He never experienced nausea but gained 30 lb. from steroids.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): My son continued to have back pain even after his surgery. A catscan showed that he had cancer that had metastasized in his kidney area and in his lung area. Total of 3 tumors.
